Event description

Description

Diversity Matters is excited to collaborate with LGBT equality charity Stonewall this Black History Month!

To support the Stonewall Season – from 1 to 10 November this year, we're organising this creative arts participatory workshop facilitated by non-binary creative Travis Alabanza on the 5th Oct at UAL High Holborn

The final art work produced will be presented in the Stonewall Season closing event for around 500 people including artists, major donors, art collectors and celebrities, where they will be exhibiting and auctioning off some bespoke pieces of art created by a range of artists from the creative industries.

We'll be exploring Stonewall Season's theme #ByYourSide. Open to both LGBTQ+ identifying and non-identifying allies. This is a great opportunity to include the narrative of LGBTQ and non-binary siblings during Black History Month! You don't have to be an artist to take part - just open to creativity!
